There's a story that goes along with these, but you'd have to ask Morgan what it is. I think it involves a brothel and me stealing her dog.

A while back in the Chicago Reader, I ran across an article about a guy named Scott Urban that makes custom glasses out of old vinyl records. I went to his website  and found that he also makes glasses out of wood. Over the course of the last few months, Scott and I have worked on a design for a new pair based off his Blockhead Design. I'll post some of the design process at a later time, but here are some crude photos of the finished product which I just picked up last night. They're absolutely stunning.

The woods used are amboyna burl for the top piece, lignum vitae for the overall base of the frame, with sandalwood at the bottom and black gaboon ebony for the inset.

Notice that each temple piece starts on a different point in the glasses so that they're assymetrical. Also the pattern on the wood alternates as well to match the shift.
